2019 Britannia Five Ounce Silver Proof Coin

BR195OZS 2019 Britannia 5oz Silver Proof Boxed
from
£295.00
Silver proof five ounce Britannia, issued in 2019. These UK investment coins were first struck in gold in 1987 with silver editions following in 1997. While most Britannias are produced with a bullion-standard finish, each year The Royal Mint offers a limited number of these coins in proof, hilighting the special annual designs that have been commissioned for the series. 2019’s Britannia is the work of sculptor and illustrator, David Lawrence. This is the second year in a row that he has contributed a design for these Royal Mint coins. In this design Britannia points her trident right, directing the lion that stands by her side. Lawrence said that his work was inspired by the ‘great engravers of the past … The end result is an Anglicised version of ancient Rome’. Britannia has been shown with a lion on British coinage before as well as on ‘Death Pennies’ issued to the families of those who fell in the First World War. Lawrences’ Britannia is paired with Jody Clark’s portrait of Her Majesty the Queen, the fifth and final portrait used on her money. This five ounce coin has a face value of £10 / Ten Pounds and is composed of 156.30 grams of .999 fine silver. The scale of this piece (it measures 65.00 millimetres in diameter) as well as the proof finish will allow the owner to appreciate the designs in all their glory. The fact that this 2018 Britannia comes from a limited edition presentation of just 340 pieces only adds to its appeal.
